Introduction

Development of the concept of long-term food storage is an independent field of scientific and applied research using polymers of various chemical compositions and structures.

It includes elaboration of technology of storing food products and food staples using advanced packaging materials. Their development is based on studies of temporal regularities of the quality of products depending on chemical composition, properties and structure. External factors are to be considered, too; they include conditions and terms of storage, air temperature and humidity, biocide properties of container/packaging materials, quality assessment criteria in turning out/accepting products and in long-time storage.
